For years, Cameron Diaz has been married to her husband, Benji Madden, and he has a twin who looks exactly like him. The actress recently revealed why she was only attracted to Benji.
On Monday, Cameron Diaz, 49, was a guest on Anna Faris’ podcast "Anna Faris Is Unqualified." There she opened up about how she and her husband, Benji Madden, met for the first time.
Funny enough, the “Charlie’s Angels” star actually met her future husband through Nicole Richie and Benji’s identical twin, Joel Madden. Richie and Joel are now Diaz’s sister and brother-in-law.
After meeting up with the pair, Diaz found herself in the same room as Benjie and they ended up finding each other. Diaz was surprised when she finally met Benji. She wondered why she hadn’t seen him before.
Katherine Power, the actress’s business partner and fellow guest on Faris’ podcast, noted how funny it was because Diaz had already seen Benji’s twin brother.
The star explained how meeting both brothers wasn’t the same because they weren't the same. She confessed that even though Joel and Benji were twins, they were very different, recalling:
"I saw him walking towards me and I was like, 'Huh, he's hot, I haven't seen him before.'”
“The Bad Teacher” actress immediately realized that Benji was special, and they ended up getting married in 2015 in a secret ceremony. The couple now shares a daughter, Raddix, 1, who was born in 2019.

The same year their child was born, Diaz confessed to InStyle that marriage was “hard.” She admitted she wasn’t sure if she was ready to get married when she did but knew Benji was special.
Diaz acknowledged how marriage was a lot of work and required someone willing to work on it mutually. The actress confessed that the union needed a 50-50 balance all the time.
She described Joel’s brother as a good man and their relationship an honest one. The star was also grateful for her husband and their marriage, claiming it was the best thing to ever happen in her life.
Diaz isn’t only besotted with her husband but also with their child. In April 2020, she took part in an Instagram Live recording where she opened up about motherhood, calling it the best part of her life.
